This post is an update to an earlier post found at:
concerning the remarkable discovery of Paul Vaughan.
The above graph compares the deviation of the surface
rotation velocity plot of Tlatov and Makarov (2005)
[top graph] with the relative rotation velocities (blue
histogram) and rotational accelerations (red histogram)
of the outer convective layers of the Sun that are predicted
by the VEJ Tidal-Torquing Model [bottom graph].
Superimposed across the top of the lower graph are
red lines that show the periods of time where the
Tlatov and Makarov (2005) graph indicates that
the Sun's near-equatorial (< 10-15 degrees away
from the equator) rotation rate is higher than
normal. Similarly, superimposed across the bottom
of the lower graph are red lines that show the periods
of time where the Tlatov and Makarov (2005)
graph indicates that the Sun's near-equatorial
rotation rate is lower than normal.
What this graph shows is the rotational velocities of the
outer layers of the Sun that are predicted by the VEJ
Tidal-Torquing Model are almost perfectly synchronized
in phase with the measured changes in rotational
velocity on the surface of the Sun, over a period of
